One family’s rich heritage of Italian culture meets another family’s passionate pursuit of flavour. The Farina Tipo “00”, crafted by Provenance Flour And Malt in collaboration with Luigi Esposito brings together generations of experience and locally grown Lancer Wheat.
Born and raised in Naples, Luigi Esposito found his passion for food in the basil, tomato and charcoal filled streets of Southern Italy. The custodian of traditional recipes perfected over many generations, his tryst with cooking and baking started early. From a young age, he followed his grandparents around the streets of Naples selling pagniottiello and freshly made pizza fritta to the locals. His passion and skills were soon recognised as he was inducted into the Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napoletani and Associazione Regina, to protect the value of making pizzas according to the old Neapolitan traditions. He then went on to work in some of the best pizzerias in Naples and all over Europe, learning from the masters and honing his trade. With a bag of Neapolitan secrets and his rich Esposito heritage in tow, Luigi travelled to Sydney to share the vibrancy and flavours of Italy with all Australians. After opening five restaurants and touching countless hearts, he is now sharing his secrets with a line of premium products for people to use in their own kitchens to enjoy with loved ones.
